    <p>THE Sea Eagles are still without a major sponsor for the 2011 NRL season, despite establishing a new commercial arrangement with Centrebet for the next three seasons.</p>

    Top work Lowey. Congrats on the deal mate. Lets hope we can spark up a healthy relationship with Centrebet, and make it long term. I'd definitely call them marquee. I'd definitely call them profitable.

    If we can just snare that elusive sponsor on the front, things will be looking sweet !!

    Lets put the Centrebet deal into perspective.
    1mil over 3 yrs = approx $333k per year.
    That wouldn't even cover Killers contract.

    Every bit helps and this is a good start but surely the club can and must do better.

    THE FITZ FILES

    What an odd coincidence. In the same week that rugby league struggles with a growing stench concerning a flood of serious betting being placed on a minor unlikely event that subsequently didn't occur, international cricket has been devastated by irrefutable proof that the Pakistani Test team is corrupt. And we can all see the common feature. Sports that embrace sports betting are exactly like heavy smokers. Yes, it is pleasurable at first and a seductive source of revenue. Drag it down deep, there you go, and blow rings at the wowsers who fear for you. But the longer it goes and the more heavily it is inhaled, the more likely it really will turn cancerous. Attacking first at the fringes - minor players agreeing to do little things - it then metastasises from there, until the Test results tell the tale and it is obvious to all that the very soul of the sport is malignant.

    ok......., is often not worth listening to.

    Too true in this case though.
    Unfortunately, what Steve Miller says, is the way of the sporting world.

    "go on, take the money and run"

    From what I was told they are paying a lot more for the space on the jersey than what was currently being paid for that spot

    Fitzsimmons can go blow. he hates League and continually drones on about any negative he can dredge up on the game.  I find it hard to find a 'flood of serious betting' with the league.  It seems to me there's an allegation of a couple of dodgy bets made on a game that didn't come off.  if the plunge was serious it would have happened.  It didn't, and that should tell us something about the game.  Nothing is perfect in this world, but to allege there's a flood is laughable.  He loves to get his name in the paper to flog his dreadful array of books.  Especially at Christmas time.  If any of you have any, I'd suggest you donate them to charity bins or burn them.

      Good idea.  They're the folk who pick up the pieces of the kids left starving while their carers donate their welfare cheques to Centrebet.

    I had the opportunity to pick up one of his books for free some years ago. They were giving them away at the local Dymocks. I think it was the one about Les Darcy. I turned down the offer...
